I've been a bit busy, so blogging has been sporadic. Rather than leaving you with nothing to read, let me point you to a post at GraniteGrok that asks the important question: What could go wrong? In this case it's about LA's proposed move to ban paper or plastic bags in an effort to force people to use reusable cloth bags.
It's obvious they folks in the upper echelons of LA government haven't thought this through and will, in the end, make the people of LA pay for their shortsightedness as they fall sway to the Law of Unintended Consequences. But then California provides uncountable examples of how the Law has been punishing their residents for decades.
